Additional Information

Summary of Electrical Utility Construction, Training, and Safety Expertise As a high-voltage electric utility expert witness, I offer a unique perspective from over 35 years of expansive experience in this specialized industry. The breadth of my experience spans from working in the field as a certified Journeyman Lineman through upper-level field leadership, to upper-level operational management, and as Director of Safety and Training. I know the work, and I know the workforce. This diverse background allows me to understand the circumstances of a case and formulate expert opinions by looking at facts from varying viewpoints. My expertise has been utilized by counsel as a subject matter expert and depositions, multiple times, in multiple states. My expertise is high-voltage electric construction, workplace safety, safe work methods, federal and state OSHA compliance, technical instruction, and training. I have vast experience completing incident and accident investigations, root-cause-analysis, and incident reconstruction for crane tip-overs, underground utility dig-ins for gas and electric, property damage, crew-caused circuit interruptions, improper wiring claims, wire pulling mishaps, unplanned outages, electrical contact, electrical shock, burns, and electrocution. Extensive training experience and skill create an advantage when explaining complex subjects with easy-to-understand reports and educating the trier of fact, court, and jury.
